Clear Lake Dermatologists Serve Patients Requiring Laser Tattoo Removal in Pearland, TX.
How Does Laser Tattoo Removal Work?
Lasers are used to remove tattoos through a process of breaking down the pigment found in the tattoo’s ink. This is done with a high-intensity light beam. Black tattoos come off the easiest due to the dark color absorbing the heat energy of the laser beam effectively. Colored tattoos can also be removed; however, they require lasers that are specifically matched to their unique color pigments.
Who Can Benefit from Laser Tattoo Removal?
Tattoos come in all shapes and sizes. As customizable as tattoos are, removal methods must be just as individualized. In the past, tattoo removal was attempted in many different ways and only achieved moderate results. Sometimes tattoos weren’t completely removed, or the scars left by the removal process were worse looking than the original tattoo.
Even if you have tried to remove your tattoo using a faulty method, laser tattoo removal can still benefit you. It can finish removing the tattoo and clear up any mess made by the prior removal attempt. It can even help you if you only have a small amount of scarring.
What is the Laser Tattoo Removal Procedure?
Laser tattoo removal is popular because it provides excellent results. The process uses short, intense bursts of heat energy along the surface of your skin. These bursts work to break up the pigments of the tattoo ink so that your body can naturally remove them. The entire removal usually takes between five to 10 sessions, depending on how old your tattoo is and its size and colors. We will be with you from beginning to end, making sure you are satisfied with your removal.
